One of Beijing’s most visited attractions is the Forbidden City so called because it was out of bounds to visitors for over 500 years. This huge palace complex has almost 10,000 rooms and was home to many Chinese emperors and was the centre of power for the whole of China.

Stretching from Liaoning province through to the Gobi Desert, the origins of The Great Wall date back to almost 200BC.

Originally built to keep out undesirables, the wall was mainly used to transport equipment and people across the difficult terrain and to pass on messages regarding advancing enemies. Another must-see attraction in Beijing is the Summer Palace, an imperial retreat away from the summer heat of the city and a stunning collection of royal gardens, temples, bridges, lakes and pavilions.
